Stephen Stills Talks Woodstock in Latest Gretsch Interview

Posted:

The legendary Stephen Stills has had a blockbuster career, earning two inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his work with Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills and Nash.

And through much of his career, Stills could be seen with a trusty Gretsch White Falcon, a guitar he was first introduced to by Neil Young.

Stills was kind enough to talk about his relationship with Gretsch in a recent interview, which includes the amazing story of how Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young nearly missed their chance to play at the original Woodstock.

Watch the interview below and visit Crosby, Stills and Nash’s official website for current tour dates.
